It’s Friday and time for another keluar sgp Leaderboard update. When I wrote last week, it was to announce the winners for the month of August and to update you on the current weekly leaderboard. This week, since we’re 12 days into September, we also have some solid monthly standings to look at.
These were the winners for last week’s weekly leaderboard:

1. Panicked – 3165 pts
2. iNcOgNiTo888 – 2681 pts
3. Troy111 – 2454 pts

Congratulations to Panicked, who won the chance to play a Bodog pro heads-up for $1,000. When I wrote last Friday, he was in 3rd place with 3 more days to go. iNcOgNiTo888, who ended up finishing 2nd, kept the top spot for one more day, but then Panicked stole it away and kept 1st place for the last two days of the week. Panicked also won the weekly leaderboard a few months ago back in May. Troy111, another very good tournament player on Bodog, finished in 3rd place. Troy111 has been in the top 10 for the week for 21 days out of the past 30, and he was in 1st place for the new monthly leaderboard when I wrote last Friday.

Here is the top ten for the current week’s leaderboard:

1. Panicked – 1585 pts
2. Pdiddy100 – 1420 pts
3. TheMicrowave – 1409 pts
4. whatever877 – 1381 pts
5. Swany420 – 1304 pts
6. Troy111 – 1220 pts
7. gotzballz – 1100 pts
8. Killa_Tyven – 917 pts
9. maddawg025 – 909 pts
10. The Maven – 904 pts

There are several familiar names in the list above, most notably that of Panicked. We just saw that he won last week’s leaderboard, so it is very exciting that he is currently on top for this week, too! As I mentioned last Friday, I have never seen a player win the weekly leaderboard two weeks in a row, and it will be interesting to see if Panicked can pull it off. His lead over both 2nd and 3rd place is very small, however, so he still has plenty of work to do.

Here is the current top ten for the month of September:

1. Panicked – 3821 pts
2. Troy111 – 3275 pts
3. iNcOgNiTo888 – 2933 pts
4. whatever877 – 2886 pts
5. vinnyb9 – 2639 pts
6. Swany420 – 2620 pts
7. The Maven – 2559 pts
8. michaeleahci – 2375 pts
9. RezinLife – 2371 pts
10. Pdiddy100 – 2346 pts

There’s Panicked again in 1st place, moving up from 3rd last week. This is the first time I’ve ever seen the same player in the top spot for all three of my reported standings! Panicked obviously had a very good past week of tournaments on Bodog. Troy111, 6th on this week’s weekly leaderboard so far, is in 2nd for the month right now. Despite increasing his monthly point total significantly since last Friday, he dropped one spot from 1st place. iNcOgNiTo888 was in 2nd place last week and is now in 3rd.
Bodog-Poker Leaderboards – Current Leaders August 29th
Welcome to this week’s version of the Bodog Poker Leaderboard update. We’re a mere two days away from the end of the month which means that the August leaderboard is coming to a close. Who is in the lead right now and is that lead safe? Read on to find out!

As always, let’s see who won last week’s weekly leaderboard first. Here were the top three when it was all over:

1. Balla686 – 2304 pts
2. vinnyb9 – 1839 pts
3. Panicked – 1792 pts

Congratulations to Balla686 for winning the weekly race and the chance to play a Bodog pro heads-up for $1,000. He moved up from 4th to 1st in the last few days of the week, taking the top spot away from Panicked. Vinnyb9 was in 3rd when I wrote last Friday and moved up to finish in 2nd by the time the week was over.

Now for some current standings – here is this week’s top ten so far:

1. michaeleahci – 2035 pts
2. manderbutt – 1094 pts
3. ParliGod – 939 pts
4. andyvanslyke – 933 pts
5. Swany420 – 844 pts
6. WillyNilly – 835 pts
7. bigShelton – 790 pts
8. whatever877 – 789 pts
9. scarface0928 – 764 pts
10. RayRay26 – 763 pts

Michaeleahci has a huge lead with 2035 points, almost 1,000 points ahead of 2nd place manderbutt. This is by far the largest lead I have seen since I started covering the Bodog leaderboards – it’s hard to imagine that anyone will be able to overcome it in the last few days of this week. We can’t rule it out completely, however, especially with so many good players in the top ten right now. ParliGod is more than capable of stringing together a few good tournament finishes, as is andyvanslyke, who won a weekly leaderboard this year back in April.

Now for what you’ve been waiting for: some updated monthly standings for August!

1. manderbutt – 4324 pts
2. vinnyb9 – 4281 pts
3. thatsNice – 3965 pts
4. Panicked – 3937 pts
5. gotzballz – 3861 pts
6. ParliGod – 3709 pts
7. whatever877 – 3700 pts
8. WillyNilly – 3485 pts
9. Troy111 – 3432 pts
10. cusee – 3410 pts

The names in the top ten haven’t changed all that much, but the order of the names has. Manderbutt was in 3rd place last week with 3781 points, but after a great past week of tournaments, he has shot up to 1st place and 4324 points. Vinnyb9 kept 2nd place, and thatsNice, last week’s 1st place, dropped down to 3rd place with 3965 points. The only new addition to the top ten this week is that of cusee; he moved up from last week’s 13th to this week’s 10th. So now the question is, what will the standings look like a couple days from now when August is over? Manderbutt is in the lead right now, but his lead is slim as vinnyb9 is less than 50 points behind him. In fact, less than 100 points separates 1st place from 10th, so anyone in the top ten could potentially move into 1st.
